In http://www.cadtutor.net/forum/showth...t=21317&page=2 ,dipali said on 19.3.08 'the file size will be too big in your method if the project is large size'. Is that it? What happens when 'too big'?
Looking again at dipali's suggested method with elevations 'pinwheeled' around each plan - how can you work on an elevation that's upside down?
Would file size be smaller, using Xrefs instead of big Blocks? 5 floor plans, 5 instances of each. Would each floor plan be a separate .dwg, each one Xref'd 5 times onto a master .dwg, where the elevations are drawn?
Are Xrefs as quickly and easily edited in Refedit, as are Blocks? Do the modifications show up immediately in the other instances, once saved and Refedit closed?
Is it OK to edit Blocks/Xrefs via the Model button, working within Paperspace? I did wonder whether that creates information loops.
